So, yesterday was summer solstice.
And if I’m honest, I was meant to post this yesterday but was just so busy with other bits and pieces taking up my day that I was naughty and in the end just totally forgot!
So, the longest day of the year, where from here on in the days start to get shorter again, as we approach autumn and winter.
Ok, ok… that’s way off!
The kids haven’t even broken up for summer holidays yet!
So, instead of seeing the glass half empty, I thought I’d embrace the fact that summer is officially here and that we’ve got a while yet to make the most of it, so decided to share just a few things with you as to the reasons I both love and loath summertime……
Reasons I love summer
outdoor adventures with the girls
outdoor pub lunches
light, balmy evenings
paddling pools and bare bottoms (the kids’, not ours!!)
happy smiling faces
fresh cut grass
al fresco dining with friends
Things that spoil it for me!…….
hayfever and the pollen count
bare skin and bingo wings
sunburn and strap marks
lack of babysitters as they’re all on holiday
frizzy hair reminiscent of a bad perm
holiday traffic and caravans
And,I could really do with that rather controversial or elusive ‘thigh gap’ about now, as the tops of my legs rub when I’m hot and sticky!!
